One Omaha teen is now dancing her way into a book.

She entered and contest auditioned to be in a book called "Dance Across the USA."

The book has dancers from every state, and Madison Chizek gets to represent Nebraska.

The Millard South High School sophomore her mother are traveling to Florida Wednesday for the book's launch party.

She says it's an honor to represent the beautiful state of Nebraska.

Chizek said, "It's nice to know that your hard work pays off, and I feel like although I can stay humble through it all, it's nice to be reminded that what I am doing is important."

A portion of the book's proceeds will go toward the National Parks Service and the National Endowment for the Arts.
